A summary of results is provided for approximately twenty non-traditional inorganic polymer candidate precursors, originating from ferrous, non-ferrous as well as other high temperature industrial processes. These residues are typically semi-vitreous and include substantial levels of Fe. Dissolution experiments were conducted to assess their reactivity and in conjunction with indicative physico-mechanical properties for the pastes, the most promising precursors were identified. Focus is placed on secondary copper slag and different processes that lead to different final microstructures are presented. The work is closing with a presentation of actions taking place in Flanders, aiming to present these new materials and contribute in performance-based material selections.
